adventure walks

This service is designed to provide your dog with the mental and physical stimulation that they need to be calm and well-behaved at home. We couple high-intensity cardio along with a structured pack walk to allow your dog to release energy and socialize with other dogs of the same temperament. 

 

We pick up your dog from home on the day of their Adventure Walk and go to a nearby trail or park for a group walk and playtime. We will return your tired dog home 2 hours later and send you a summary of the day's adventure along with photos of your dog and their canine friends.

dog walking & pet sitting

Private and personalized in-home visits with a dog walker on a regular or as-need basis. Schedule morning, midday, or evening visits to give your dog the love, attention, and exercise they deserve while you are working or traveling. You will receive an update at the end of each visit providing you with a visit summary and a picture of your pet.

For pet sitting, we require a minimum of three 30-minute visits per full day you are away. Younger, crated, or more energetic dogs often need longer visits or four visits per day. We recommend a longer visit when also feeding the pet to allow plenty of time for a walk and cuddles.

policies

COVID-19 Response Plan

We are open for all services and accepting new clients. We have a COVID-19 Response Plan in place to keep our employees and clients as safe as possible. We are conducting the majority of Meet & Greet's outside the client's home and minimizing any time spent inside together. We require that everyone wear a face mask and maintain social distancing. For all services, we are requiring No-Contact Visits, which means we will only enter a client's home if no one is home. If someone will be home during the scheduled service, then we will arrange the best way for the dog walker to pick up and drop off the dog to minimize or eliminate person-to-person contact. We also have increased sanitation practices in place, such as wearing a face mask when inside your home, washing/sanitizing our hands before, during, and after every visit, and wiping down touched surfaces at the end of each visit. 

 

Meet & Greet

We require a Meet & Greet for all new clients before we can begin service. We want to make sure we are a good fit for you and your pet! We want to meet your pet and discuss the pet's normal routine, behavior, and health history. We want to see where you keep pet related items, such as food, leashes, litter boxes, and cleaning supplies. The Meet & Greet takes place in your home. We require a $20 deposit for the Meet & Greet. This deposit will be applied in full to your first scheduled service. We also require proof of Rabies for each pet before the meeting. For Adventure Walks, we require Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella.

Holiday Fee

We include a $10 holiday fee to each visit scheduled on a holiday. Those holidays are New Years Eve, New Years Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving (the day before, day of, and day after), and Christmas (the day before, day of, and day after).

Cancellations

We have a 24 Hour Cancellation Policy. Visits that are cancelled within 24 hours of the start of the visit are full price and cannot be rescheduled or refunded. Visits that are cancelled with more than 24 hours notice are eligible for account credit or can be rescheduled for another time or day. This policy also applies to Meet & Greets.

Boarding

We do NOT offer boarding. We are not a daycare or boarding facility. We provide only in-home pet care.

Weddings and Events

We provide pet care services for weddings and events. Email us at Info@BarksleyRVA.com for more information and pricing. We require a Meet & Greet ahead of time for all events so we have the opportunity to meet your pets and discuss all the details for the event. Availability is limited.
